Features like Surround View, Top View and Parking Assistant have been added to aid the driver at any given time. Steering and handling have been enhanced to match the standards of this premium sports car.
Three black air intakes have been added in the front apron along with a black glossy grille with chrome slats. Air breathers have been placed on the side of the car and the hood, it is no longer straight but curved.
The L-shaped tail lights have been stretched and re-positioned towards the outer edges.
Despite being a sport model, the interior has been designed to look stylish with ergonomically placed controls around the driver. A sports steering wheel and crystal-clear instruments have been integrated on the dashboard.
The seats are covered in leather which are available in multiple colors. The interior side of the dashboard is also covered in leather of the same color as the seats for a more imposing visual effect.
The model is advertised as having outstanding fuel economy and superior dynamic. From the outside, the design of the car makes it clear that the manufacture focused on building a luxury sports car.
